Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
This is James, I'm an appliance repair technician with over 10 years of experience, and I'll be assisting you today

Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.
Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft, it suggests the laptop is updating, some updates to windows 7 can take up to 8 hours, if its still like this tomorrow then you can manually turn it off by pressing and holding the power button for 5 seconds, but you should look to upgrade to Windows 10 at the earliest opportunity.
